  • Academic Program - Department of German - Colgate University
    transnationalism has emerged to address contemporary political and cultural phenomena that are no longer confined to the stages of nation states This course examines the transnational imagination at work in recent German cultural production with an emphasis on cinematic negotiations of German and European identity Factors contributing to these negotiations include the tenuous legacy of German unification the consolidation of the European Union and the migration of people to Germany especially those with a non European background To grasp the status of the transnational in this context the course s method of inquiry is interdisciplinary the focus on contemporary films is supplemented with historical background contemporary political philosophy and political essays The films are selected for the aesthetic qualities through which they must be interpreted To develop an understanding of the transnational aesthetic as a medium specific feature of film production students familiarize themselves with the terminology and methodologies of film studies and perform critical visual analyses of the cinematic material in a number of writing assignments and in class activities Attendance at weekly film screenings is mandatory Participation in the accompanying FLAC section is mandatory for students wishing to earn German major minor credit for this course FMST 200 is desirable but not required 330 Kafka Staff Kafka may be the most dizzyingly overdetermined proper name in world literature Not only does it stand for the author it has come to signify a host of political institutional existential and aesthetic conditions One refers to Kafkaesque experiences sensibilities or bureaucracies situations movies the 20th century and modern life are all regularly dubbed Kafkan or Kafkaish The name seems to have a life of its own but to understand what it means students must animate Kafka by reading him In this course students read discuss and think about a range of Kafka s writing from novels and short stories to diary entries and legal briefs paying close attention not only to the texts and their various obsessions but to their emergence in his creative process and their afterlives in translation and the works of other artists Students explore the multicultural Central European milieu that Kafka inhabited and examine the global transmission and remediation of his work in its critical reception multiple translations and adaptations its transmutation into a style and its metastasis in popular culture This course is conducted in English Participation in the accompanying FLAC section is mandatory for students wishing to earn German major minor credit for this course 351 Introduction to German Literature Staff This course introduces students to a variety of German literary texts from the 18th century to the present in their cultural and historical contexts Through topics such as revolution and social change constructions of gender national identity migration and minority experience and modernity and aesthetic innovation the course considers the versatile powers of literature to interpret and influence personal and collective experience The course also serves as a workshop in which to develop techniques and vocabulary of literary and cultural analysis In addition to furthering critical understanding of German literature as part of living culture this course will help students strengthen and expand German language skills in all four areas reading writing comprehension and speaking The class is conducted in German Prerequisite GERM 202 or equivalent 352 Crisis and Critique in Germanophone Europe Introduction to German Literature II Matthew Miller The spring semester s German 352 conducts an introduction to German Studies by focusing on crisis and critique in the history literature and culture of Germanophone Europe Not only do crisis and critique reverberate as unavoidable features of every person s life Central Europe s politically turbulent modernity confronts us with a series of pivotal historical junctures in which crisis and critique are deeply intertwined 1781 1848 1914 18 1933 1945 the 1960s in the Cold War the transformation and unification of Europe beginning in 1989 90 these dates have all had a powerful impact on German and European culture and they constitute signposts of the course s inquiry into social and political crises and the human responses they have elicited Adopting a multi medial approach the course assembles historical philosophical and literary texts as well as a few films and internet excursions to develop and practice the techniques and vocabulary of literary and cultural analysis in German The course also prepares you for advanced literature and culture seminars by fostering the expansion of your German language skills in the specific areas of reading writing comprehension and speaking Enrolling students will have completed German 202 or its equivalent 461 Goethe C Baldwin This seminar

tradition Prerequisite two GERM 300 level courses or permission of instructor 463 Contemporary Jewish German Literature C Baldwin This course focuses on writing by contemporary Jewish German authors and in particular on literary representations and engagement with Jewish cultures in Germany and Austria This literature takes on the complex issues of national and Jewish identities after the Shoah in the German and Austrian contexts for example through explorations of the interfaces of personal memory historical knowledge and contemporary politics the relationship of generational position and literary voice and the reflection on language and topographies of identity Further questions include what does it mean to write in German as Jews after the Shoah What views are offered of contemporary
